Odds are that if you are checking out the Blog here you are familiar with my comic series Chiaroscuro. If not, check it out at www.meanwhilestudios.com. The site has been under reconstruction and hasn't been updated in some time, but there's still lots there.
So it's about time for an update! Due to circumstances beyond my control, the last issue to arrive in comic shops was #7 back in May 2003. It's been my intention to collect the work into a graphic novel format at issue #10.
I've been working on the book as much as possible in the past few years and I'm happy to say I recently finished drawing the last page of what will be "Book 1".
Due to changes in the comic book industry I've decided to cease the publication of individual issue and focus on publishing the series as graphic novels. So hang on to those issues folks, they'll be collectors items.
I'm also pleased to announce that I've been awarded a grant from the P.E.I. Council of the Arts to help in the production and promotion of the book! Looks like 2006 is going to be a very busy year for me!
